    I wouldn't eat it, but it is interesting to me that the animal went for the layer of fat and left the "good" part behind. Clearly they know what the best part is!

    if the fat was on the bottom it'd have eaten the meat on top til it was just as sated

    seriously, if my choices were a succulent, fork-tender roast that gods would weep over that had raccoon bites or the raccoon meat itself, i'd eat the raccoon leg
    yeah you are

    Having eaten raccoon (and love it!)... one bit of precaution I learned is that rabies is killed if the meat is cooked well done. So as long as you cook it through, you won't have to worry about disease. Low and slow has been my process for eating raccoons and coyotes for a while.

    Me? I'd eat it. But I'm sort of a scavenger like that.

    If there's a reason it was left behind, I wonder why. Animals are fairly keen, and if something is yuck-to-eat they won't eat it (not talking domesticated dogs here, that eat everything in the trash...talking wild animals).

    There is a reason it was left. I wouldn't want to find out what it is.

    Also, as a person who is keen to the outdoors, always hang your outdoor-stored food high up. This is throwing a rope over a tree branch, high up, then fastening the cooler to it. Pull on the other end of the rope, raise the cooler into the tree, then tie the end so it holds. This keeps bears, coons, whatever away.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
